Hypnobirthing Aromatherapy Oils for Childbirth Pregnancy Yoga
Hi there I’m Ali a Mum living life in Twickenham with my husband and 2 boys. In a past life I worked in marketing but after having a positive hospital birth experience with my first son it completely changed my outlook on birth and motherhood.
I retrained as a KG Hypnobirthing teacher and have very much enjoyed teaching expectant parents for the past few years. Sharing evidence based information with clients so they can make informed decisions about their pregnancy and birth. Whilst teaching I’ve gone on to have my second son and I opted to have a water birth at home which was a magical experience for me.
Hypnobirthing inspired me to become a Doula. I’ve had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful couples many of which have said they’d liked to have had me at their birth – which always fills me with happiness. I build such a lovely rapport with couples and to be able to have the opportunity to go on and support a woman further makes complete sense.
I truly believe there is a Doula out there for every woman you just have to find the right one for you. My role is to support you as much as you need me to, to know when to fade into the background, not to give you advice but to give you information and signpost so you can make informed decisions, empower you to have a positive birth experience and most importantly support you in your decisions.
I strongly believe every woman should have an empowering and positive birth experience. Knowing friends and clients who have had Doulas reinforces this for me even more so. Doulas can give such amazing support during a time which for some can be a life event that comes with a wave of emotions. Excitement, nerves, anxiety, anticipation, fear whatever those emotions may be I will work with you to support you however you need.
I’ve had experience of supporting women through home birth, water birth, induction and caesarean sections.
